Evening Gentleman.
This rounds on me
I just found myself in a naval battle my very first so I won't be on dry ground for a while. Please could someone tell me when did Rebs learn to swim and sail ships? Cause I know for a fact rebs won't go near water unless it's their Saturday night bath. I have to go, bar-keep another round for everyone.

We are excellent sailors, sir. We just prefer to fight on land to be close to our distilleries. You can only bring so much booze aboard a ship before it becomes less a warship and more a pleasure cruise. Until Cameron's experiments with turning seawater into whiskey come to fruition we will likely allow you prohibitionist-loving Yanks the command of the seas.

Gents please be reassured all the CSA scientific resources have been focused on two things - turning sea water into single malt whisky and proving officers in the confederacy are extremely handsome. So far we have only had success with the second, the first is still alludes us, although we are close - have you tried Laphroaig Single Malt?
